Abstract art centered pretty much around art-as-art or that art either had involve with aesthetic essence or not.

Quotation of Ad Reinhardt
Art is too serious to be taken seriously.
Quotation of Ad Reinhardt
I finally made a program out of boredom. After all these years I think now that for a long time I've paraphrased Schopenhauer.
Quotation of Ad Reinhardt
I got out of Columbia and then into the American Abstract Artist group, which had almost all the abstract artists in the coutry in it, about 40 or 50.
Quotation of Ad Reinhardt
I taught a lot of art history, especially Chinese, Japanese, and Indian. But the painting classes came back. The nudes came back. Not so much the still lifes. So now our department is the worst department, partly because it has the worst facilities.
Quotation of Ad Reinhardt
I think in the future I see mainly the university academy as the proper place for the artist because the marketplace is insane.
Quotation of Ad Reinhardt
I tried to oppose the academic to the marketplace.
Quotation of Ad Reinhardt
I was drafted in '45 and I was a sailor for a year. They didn't know what to do with me so they made a sort of photographer out of me.
Quotation of Ad Reinhardt
I've been teaching for almost 20 years. I've never been called a good teacher, incidentally. I'm proud of that.
Quotation of Ad Reinhardt
I've taken on all the bad terms of the '30s. Like meaningless, useless, imageless-those kinds of words. Words like inhuman, sterile, cold-they became cool.
Quotation of Ad Reinhardt
If some student came up and wanted to know where to study painting, you'd want to suggest someplace, but there's no place. I wouldn't know where to send a student to study.
Quotation of Ad Reinhardt
In the early '40s I ran the gamut of commercial and industrial jobs around New York World's Fair that Russel Wright, Norman Bel Geddes, and so forth were in on.
Quotation of Ad Reinhardt
Intellectually and aesthetically the important thing was that there was absolutely no relation between the abstractionists and the surrealists.
Quotation of Ad Reinhardt
Now almost every artist outside of New York is connected with some school or some museum school, and even in New York the majority are. That's an interesting fact when you take the idea of making money, making a living selling paintings. Only a dozen or two painters do that.
Quotation of Ad Reinhardt
Only a bad artist thinks he has a good idea. A good artist does not need anything.
Quotation of Ad Reinhardt
The job at Brooklyn is interesting because Brooklyn reflects what happened to university art departments everywhere. It might be the worst department now, and yet at one point it was the best in the country.
Quotation of Ad Reinhardt
The surrealists were even programmatically they were anti-art. They were involved in, I don't know, life or love or sex or I don't know what. They were living it up.
Quotation of Ad Reinhardt
There is nothing deadlier than to be called a good teacher like Hofmann or Albers. It's like making boredom a central fact about art.
